Georgia Hall Wins Saudi Ladies International By 5 Leads
Georgia Kelly Hall is a professional English golfer. In 2018, Hall won the Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham, which was her first victory in a major championship. She now plays on the Ladies European Tour and the LPGA Tour. she started playing gold aged 20 in the summer of 2016 and turned professional by 2020, just three and a half years after picking up the new sport. Napoleaova has described her as the best ever LET finish which was “like a dream” to her.
Career and victories
Hall had early success, winning the Open Generali de Strasbourg in the LET Access Series. In early 2016, she won the Oates Victorian Open on the ALPG Tour. In 2017, Hall won the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit after recording seven top 10 finishes during the season, including a tie for third place at the Women’s British Open and a tie for tenth place at the Evian Championship.
Hall earned her 2018 LPGA Tour card through qualifying school. In August 2018, she won her first major championship at the 2018 Women’s British Open, finishing two strokes ahead of Pornanong Phatlum. She ended the season by winning the Ladies’ European Tour Order of Merit for the second time, becoming the youngest player to defend the title.
In 2020, while the main tours were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hall won two tournaments in the Rose Ladies Series and finished second in the overall standings behind Charley Hull. The LPGA Tour returned at the end of July, and in September she won for the second time on the tour, and the first time in the United States, at the Cambia Portland Classic, where she defeated Ashleigh Buhai in a sudden-death playoff.
Saudi Ladies International victory
The player recently claimed her victory at the Saudi Ladies International in Jeddah on Sunday. The English player won by shooting a final-round, one-under-par 71, to finish on 11 under and won by five shots at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club. Three birdies on the first four holes gave Hall an eight-shot lead and after bogeys on the 15th and 16th holes, ended with a final birdie on the 17th.
Hall eclipsed Solheim Cup team-mates Emily Kristine Pedersen and Carlotta Ciganda to claim a winner’s cheque of $135,548 (£103,000) from a $1m prize pot. Sweden’s Johanna Gustavsson and the Czech Republic’s Kristyna Napoleaova both finished confidently to share second place, the highest LET finish of both their careers.
Napoleaova equaled the lowest round of the day with a bogey-free 66, following an eagle at the par-five fourth by birdieing the seventh and taking advantage of the three other par-fives on the par-71 layout. Anne van Dam matched Hall’s 69 to sit two strokes back in third ahead of Australian Stephanie Kyriacou, who closed her six-under 66 with back-to-back birdies, while AIG Women’s Open champion Anna Nordqvist is four strokes off the pace after a level-par 72.
